A Command Control Centre equipped with a video wall was established at the Civil Supplies Department headquarters here on Tuesday, for monitoring the supply chain system against diversion of essential commodities.
Minister Eatala Rajender launched the centre from where a tab can be kept on the movement of vehicles transporting essential commodities at various stages of the supply chain.
The video wall, 210 inches wide and 72 inches long, displays the vehicles through GPS on a pre-mapped network of highways usually traversed by the Civil Supplies vehicles.
Civil Supplies Commissioner C.V. Anand informed that a total of 1,383 vehicles were involved in transporting the commodities in two stages, namely from buffer godowns to MLS (Multi Level Supply) godowns, and then from MLS godowns to the fair price shops. These apart, there are 45 kerosene tankers too which will be monitored.
